Updated to run on Debian 12 'Bookworm', with PHP 8.2 and the latest version of PTS as of today.

I also added build-linux-kernel, and right now the only non-interactive portion of the script is the pause after test installation, when the following prompt is displayed:

    Would you like to save these test results (Y/n): 

It looks like I could bypass that by setting up some defaults, e.g. /etc/phoronix-test-suite.xml with:


(But that would necessitate batch mode... I want to make it so I can bypass that question and not save results by default if using the suite...)

I added pts/build-linux-kernel with just defconfig but that doesn't seem to be working out... it runs both that and all deps.

I took out the build-linux-kernel test because it doesn't seem to accept the argument, it just runs all options which means it takes forever.

You can run it separately:

./phoronix-test-suite benchmark pts/build-linux-kernel

Reworked the script to just run everything individually, instead of setting up a custom batch. This way it is completely automated. Well, should be, at least.

Fixed the script to make sure all the tests are installed prior to being run. Otherwise... it just errors out.
